Valorant India Invitational 2022 LAN Finals – Teams, Schedule and More
A total of three teams have advanced to finals from the three qualifiers of the tournaments. Enigma Gaming won the first Indian qualifier while God Squad (former Global esports roster) secured victory in the second Indian qualifier and both teams have qualified for the LAN. The SEA Qualifier has seen 8 invited teams competing for the remaining slot at the Finals and it was Bleed Esports who managed to make it to the LAN event. Apart from these three teams, the five best international teams received a direct invite to the event.
Following are the eight participating teams in the India Invitational 2022 Main event:
- Paper Rex – Singapore
- Team Secret – Philippines (Direct Invite)
- Rex Regum Qeon – Indonesia (Direct Invite)
- BOOM Esports – Indonesia (Direct Invite)
- Team Heretics – Spain (Direct Invite)
- Bleed Esports – Singapore (SEA Qualifier)

- GodSquad – India (India Qualifier 2)
As mentioned above the Main event is slated to take place over a course of three days i.e., from 18-20 November. The primary tournament structure has yet to be formally confirmed, although it will most likely be divided into two parts: Group Stage and Playoffs.
If the event falls into the above-mentioned format, the eight teams will be divided into two groups with each consisting of four teams. The top two teams from each group will be advanced to the next stage. During the Group Stage, initial matches might be best-of-one and deciding matches could be best-of-three, however during the Playoffs, all matches would be best-of-three.
If the tournament is not split into Group Stage and Play-offs, the probable format could be a single-elimination bracket format with each match being B03 while the Grand Finals take place as a B05 match.
